During this year's trade fair Rehacare 2011 in Düsseldorf, Otto Bock's theme "Active for you" once again clearly focuses its activity on dialogue, exchange of opinions, and personal conversations with customers and end users.
"For end users the main issues are the usefulness of products and their relevance to daily life. In regard to our specialist customers, we would above all like to use the trade fair to exchange opinions about and discuss new product ideas," Gunter Röper, managing director of Otto Bock Mobility Solutions GmbH, thus outlined the goals of this year's trade fair.
In regard to new products and product ideas, this year Otto Bock is placing emphasis on fittings for children, and thereby on products that promote their development, help them in everyday life, as well as products that help parents everyday life with their children.
One example is the Kimba Neo, a consistent further development of the high-end product in the buggy portfolio. Also introduced will be the new baby carrier Easy Rider, the dynamic walking aid KidWalk, the wheelchair base frame discovery tmax, as well as a therapeutic game, which promotes the learning of colours and numbers and helps in training eye-hand coordination. All new products have one thing in common: they seek to meet the special needs of children in regard to weight, proper proportions, functionality suitable for children and through the goal-oriented use of devices in the important phase of early childhood intervention.
The new safety belts, the new line of seat cushions Elements and the Wolturnus Racebike round out the diverse offering of new products in the area of Mobility Solutions.
The other Otto Bock core areas of prosthetics, orthotics and neurostimulation will be represented in a variety of ways at Rehacare: through the product line Aqualine® Otto Bock offers a comprehensive selection of waterproof prosthetic components. Now a new cosmetic cover for waterproof modular transfemoral prostheses - the Aqualine® Cover - serves as an ideal complement to the portfolio. The new prosthetic foot Triton makes a high level of mobility possible, while the new C-Leg® offers secure everyday reliability with extended functionality.
Please visit us from the 21st to the 24th September, 2011 at Rehacare in Hall 4, Booth 4G03. We look forward to seeing you there!
